Staying on track

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

I am a mother, student, girlfriend, friend, daughter, sister, volunteer, etc. I wear many different labels depending on what time of day it is. I proudly wear these badges with honor. The badge I'm striving for is the one that declares I've hit my goal weight.

I'm a super busy active lady who needs to remember to put her health first. I thought if I wrote this down it would serve as my reminder. I can't be the best mother, student, girlfriend, etc. if I'm run down and not feeling in tip-top shape.

I may not be able to exercise to my fullest potential everyday. Nor can I eat that way either. I can only strive to make the best out of my time and situations. If something comes up and I have to grab a meal-on-the-go I can make sure I choose the healthiest option. I was also surprised to catch myself doing calf raises in line at the grocery store the other day. I love how my body is starting to naturally want to be active. What's that law of physics? Once in motion, always in motion? Yep that's me. I'm a big ball of kinetic energy.

Now I just need to remember this blog post and give myself some leeway now and then. I had a rough day yesterday and felt depressed about having not eaten or exercised very well in the past few days. It happens. I can't change yesterday but I do have the power in me to change today. With that said I must go study, do laundry, cook, and clean my tub. All in a day's work!

Let's be kind to our minds and bodies. They do a heck of a lot for us. :)

Happy Sparking everyone!

    One thing I like to remind myself when I have rough days is how much different (improved) my rough days are now compared to how I was eating and how little activity I was doing before.

    Here's to kindness to mind, body, and heart!
